### NOTE ###
This app is NOT for editing the library of Apple's Photos.
Apple's Photos makes some data files for metadata (e.g. metaSchema.db) in the Photos.photoslibrary > database while importing image files.
Apple's Photos shows metadata written in the metaSchema.db, not show metadata embedded in the imported image files.
Photo Meta Edit does edit metadata embedded in the image files, so Apple's Photos does not show the changes.
If you want Photos to show the changes, re-import image files to remake the metaSchema.db of Photos.
It would be better to edit before importing images for avoiding unexpected troubles in Photos. Photos never edit original imported image files. The data files in the Photos.photoslibrary should not be edited by 3rd party apps. It could make some troubles.
・General tab is obsolete. Added Favorites tab. You can arrange only the metadata items that the user wants to see/edit in order of preference. The supported items are TIFF format metadata including Exif and GPS-related.
・Fixed small bugs
